Subject: Brent on Fantasy
I attended the entire summer tour and I think it's accurate to say that Brent took over the lyrics. I don't think it was because Jerry forgot them.
This version dictated how the song would be played...with Brent on lead vocals.
The Jerry solo that followed Brent's verse is blistering.

Subject: Fantastic performance marred by the recording
Subject: Was Phil there?
Levels too low, audience too loud, and no bass lines, it's un-listenable to me.
4 1/2 stars? That's not right.
Subject: The Other One
Subject: This is great.
Subject: Well worth a listen
i was at this show where my buddy recorded it with a single stereo condensor mike from the lawn on a sony D6. that tape is long gone unfortunately, but i used to listen to it a lot because the jams were worth it. this recording is much better, of course, though a little lacking on the low end to be sure and kinda thin overall. But you gotta love the audience reactions regardless - you really FEEL the crowd with an audience tape and it has a certain ambient ingredient missing on the soundboards.
All said, this was a pretty solid show -- not as strong as the Alpine's that preceded it perhaps -- but with Garcia at his fiery best through a strong second set it holds up nicely. I love the way Brent steals that last verse from Jerry in Dear Mr. Fantasy and Jerry just kinda moans a harmony. also love nearly whispered first verse of The Other One and the wicked playing that follows. You can really hear all the players equally and the drum separation is remarkable through this recording, especially during this jam, for some reason. Sweet show. Listen to it loud wihtout headphones and eq'd with more low end. enjoy!

Subject: 1st show
They only played Mr. Fantasy one other time for a first at Red Rocks on 6-14-84.
I wasn't there but I agree with you in that probably Jerry missed his cue and Brent stepped up and became the perfect front man for Mr. Fantasy.
Prior to this there wasn't much of a precedent
This is classic 84 mid west summer tour. guarantee this was a fun party and good vibes.
3-4 sound (aud)
5-show (iam bias to 84 though)
5-venue (out door ampitheather lawn & pavilion)
Subject: My first show
Subject: Popskull correction
Subject: Show = A!, sound = B
Subject: First Show
Garcia does the lead vocal on Fantasy, unlike subsequent versions where Brent took the lead
You need this show
